From the outside, my day looks like this:
I wake up somewhere between 11 am and 1 pm
Play video games till about midnight.
And go to bed.
Very basic and boring to write about.
However on the inside:
This morning I woke in my bivouac which I built in the backyard, in order to test out my new folding bed which is going into my Andersen Shelter I am digging on our block of land.
The temperature was between 0 and 5 degrees Celsius which added a little spice to the adventure.
I lay in bed surrounded by two jerry cans I discovered at the recycling centre and resprayed, imagining I was in the Home Guard during World War 2.
At 5:30 am, after a surprisingly comfortable but short sleep (3 1/2 hrs!), I returned to the 21st century and the work of Slow Mo Guys filming glass shattering at 324,000 fps.
Porridge for breakfast called me indoors and I snuggled into my other bed to eat it with more Slow Mo Guys entertainment.
Returning to my favourite era of the 1940’s, I jumped on the computer to play Heroes and Generals enjoying the in-depth environment of the frontline. Including installing a new weapons pack on the back of my SdKfz (a 1944 half track German motorbike).
After lunch, I mostly watched Youtube videos of funny moments in Heroes and Generals.
Then I got bored and decided to conduct some experiments in my fish tank. ( It’s alright, there are absolutely 100% no fish involved.) I bought the fish tank last week at The Green Shed.
Various experiments were conducted with food colouring, cut in half plastic bottles, and tissues, studying flotation, water pressure, surface tension, vortexes, bleeding, filtration and oil leaks.
Mum videoed some of this for our vlog Natural Medley on youtube. (subtle plug!)
Various housework took place and writing of this article.
Now I’m off to have more porridge before going to bed in the am. Couldn’t do that at school…
